5 Ways to Protect Your Commercial Property with Insurance

Commercial property is an investment and key part of your business. Keeping it insured can help safeguard against loss, cost you nothing in the short term and even save you money in the long term. Protecting your business property with insurance means understanding your coverage needs. Here are 5 ways you can protect your commercial property with insurance:

Assess your coverage needs

Before you start shopping for commercial insurance coverage, you should assess your coverage needs and determine what you need coverage for, why you need it and what price point you can accept. This will help you to narrow down which types of coverage you need, helping to save you time and effort. Assessing your coverage needs is also crucial if you have existing commercial property. It can often be easy to assume you have adequate coverage, but sometimes it’s easy to forget that your old property, or policies, may not be enough. Assess the size of your business and the value of your commercial property. If your property is not worth as much as you think, you may be able to save yourself a lot of money if you have a loss.


Update your insurance policies

Changes in legislation and new risk factors can result in insurers updating the terms of your policies. For example, new laws surrounding the safety of workers and pedestrians may mean your policies need updating, or new risk factors like a cyber attack may require a review of your cover. Changes to your insurance policies can often be done easily and inexpensively without the need for a policy change or new policy. A good practice is to keep your insurance policies up to date, as it will help to ensure you are getting the best deal from your insurer.


Conduct risk assessments

It is important to understand the levels of risk your commercial property is facing, as this can help you to better assess the coverage you need. This can be done through the use of risk assessments. Commercial property insurance policies are often based on an assessment of risk. If you conduct your own risk assessment, you will be better informed of your commercial property’s specific risks, helping you to better protect your own interests.


Discuss new risks with your insurer

When you have reviewed your coverage needs, and updated your policies, you can then move on to the next step and discuss any new risks with your insurer. This may be particularly useful if your business is at risk of a new risk factor or is in a new area that your current policies may not adequately cover. Discussing any new risks or areas of concern with your insurer will help to ensure you have the coverage you need.


Reinforce “weak” areas with insurance coverage

Some “weak areas” in commercial property coverage will exist from the start. However, these can be easily reinforced with new insurance coverage. For example, you may have a building policy that does not cover a specific area within the premises. You can reinforce this coverage with a new building insurance policy that specifically covers that area.



Protecting your commercial property with insurance can help to safeguard against loss and cost you nothing in the short term, but may even save you money in the long term. Assess your coverage needs and keep your insurance policies up to date, and you can strengthen the coverage “weak” areas with insurance coverage. Additionally, you can also conduct risk assessments and discuss new risks with your insurer to reinforce “weak” areas with insurance coverage.
